I am not sure what you mean by "handle the differentiation". A lazy
pointer is essentially an eager pointer plus the {id,db} pair which
can be NULL. If the pair is NULL, then the pointer is transient.

I don't think you can update the ID directly. But resetting it, yes,
that would force the ID re-query.
